Yep.... Not good. I down loaded the name of the Italian brand and they make everything for alfa. Got them fro Centerline... Best and easier than most.... Just drove my baby to Monterey and back yesterday.... She ran puurrfect!
They're out of stock on the rear ones and have a price of $192.

I know I can do better than that.

You have come up against the biggest, I think, problem with owning an alfetta. Some venders are selling a reproduction of the rear flex disc without the pilot bearing. not good. when a flex disc turns up which is correct it is usually OLD. better than nothing but rubber ages. I think this is what you have. I have managed to find a couple of NOS units for future but until someone remanufactures a correct rear disc, if ever, this achilles joint threatens the future viability of the car.

Contacted EB Spares in England.
I received the correct rearmost flex disc for my 78 Sport sedan. In 3 days....
With shipping $142 US

The original one that was installed on the car with the other 2 new flexdiscs did not pilot to the nub poking out of the rear driveshaft. That's why my clutch housing exploded.
I had trouble locating the correct flexdisc new so I got a used one.

Couple months later I feel vibes....not good...that used flexdisc is developing cracks.

I began my search. One place told me they had the correct one, but I would have to take the center out of my old one and fit it into the new one.

I had already ordered one from EB but though why not pull the used flexdisc out and see if that would work. .Uh, no. Even if I could get the center piece out of the old one and press that into the "new" one, the dimensions were not correct.

Sooo, it's all together and smoother than ever.
